Charging bison damages rental car in Yellowstone
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — A video shows employees at a rental car agency all they need to know about how a car got damaged in Yellowstone National Park.
The footage shows one of dozens of bison stampeding through the park as it rams the rental and cracks the windshield. No injuries were reported.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports that a family member caught the scene on video on Aug. 13 after the animals brought traffic to a standstill.
Bison weigh up to 2,000 pounds (900 kilograms) and run up to 30 mph (48 kilometers per hour).
A video shot earlier this summer showed a man petting a bison’s head in Yellowstone. Nobody was hurt, but park officials warned visitors to keep their distance.
In July, a bison threw a 9-year-old girl into the air in Yellowstone. She wasn’t seriously hurt.
